A problem we all face...

Ok, not sure if this is covered somewhere else so I will apologize in advance if it is. I'm looking for everyone's solution to the fly problem experienced while camping. I'm not looking for common sense solutions like a clean campground. Let's hear and see your creative solutions.

Bug zapper and a 19 inch box fan.

Tennis racket zappers keep the hand eye coordination tuned.

Usually a 10 mph breeze will cure the fly problem, that's where the fan comes in

Yes, depending on the setup it goes on one side of the table or hang it on a small shepherds hook.

Take a zip-lock food storage bag an fill 1/2 to 3/4 full of water and hang it close to where you are going to be, where the sun will shine on it and watch to flies' disappear.
It has worked every time I have done this.
